My 35 Words: Puzzles

  When I worked as a waitress, there were some men that used to always take their lunch breaks in my section. They would sit and drink coffee, tell me about all of their adventures, while they worked on the crossword puzzles in the daily paper. It amazed me how fast they could solve them. I used to collect their finished puzzles after they’d left, stuffing them in my apron, and later I would just marvel at how perfect the solutions were. I can’t say why I admired the finished puzzles so much… maybe, in a way, intelligence is beautiful? I find puzzles to be quite lovely– especially after they have been all marked up and solved.

About Rachel Heu

"Creativity is an act of defiance. You're challenging the status quo. You're questioning accepted truths and principles. You're asking three universal questions that mock conventional wisdom: Why do I have to obey the rules? Why can't I be different? Why can't I do it my way?" --Twyla Tharp, The Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It For Life (pg. 133)
